Doctor Who: The Power of the Daleks
Lost for 50 years, BBC Worldwide North America and Cineplex are bringing The Power of the Daleks to Canada in a newly animated version! The Power of the Daleks is one of the most celebrated Doctor Who adventures, and yet no complete film recordings of it are known to have survived. The master negatives were destroyed in an archive purge in 1974. Now the BBC has commissioned a brand new animation based on the program’s original audio recordings, surviving photographs and film clips that will be released in cinemas 50 years after the BBC’s original UK broadcast. The six-part adventure features the regeneration, or as it was then called “renewal,” of First Doctor William Hartnell into Second Doctor Patrick Troughton, as the Time Lord and his companions Polly (Anneke Wills) and Ben (Michael Craze) do battle with the Daleks on the planet Vulcan.
